We only do desserts on special occasions, like birthdays or Christmas. Frankly, I don't see how expecting junk food after dinner contributes anything positive to diet or behavior.

All our kids (6,3 and 7 mos.) sleep in bed with us. I've heard that the natural age of independent sleeping for humans (and most primates) is closer to 9 (or equivalent in animal) years.

I bought a RoboCut for about $10.00 on Craigslist, and that's what I use to cut DH's hair - and will probably do the same with DS when he's old enough to need a haircut.
